Who bothers to change your address in your car/motorbike green book when you move?

I did that with my SCB account. NEVER AGAIN! It took over an hour and a small mountain of paperwork.

I changed my address with the banks and I agree a palaver, I was regretting doing it in there with numerous forms to sign

I once changed my passport number with my driving license (many hours waiting time because it was busy), and SCB.

Would not do it again. Waste of time. Have never heard of a Thai bothering to do it. They just wait until the license expires or maybe in case of green book if you want to sell your vehicle.

I think that would apply to the ones that cares and do not want any problem.

I don't on car or motorbike and never updated anything. Sometimes problems happen when you over think.

We had the address in the green book changed on the next tax renewal after moving. Did it through an agent, one of the many that provide a one stop, test/tax/insurance service.

 

We still haven't done our drivers licences though.

I use the agent for my tax and inspections, however when they ask "is this your correct address" I always say yes, even though it isn't.  In your experience, was the green book in a non-Thai name? If so, did they require any further paperwork such as residence certificate?

The bike is in my wife's name, so it was simply a matter of house book and Thai ID. For a falang it would yellow house or residence certificate from immigration, plus passport.

Did the same as you and changed the license address when it need to be renewed.

I probably will try to change the green book address when I go for my new licence. I'm getting one original res cert only for the two licences, I'll show them the original that I take upstairs for the licences and give them a copy, if that's not good enough I won't bother changing
